  1. Re: Do I have to pump when I only work 4hrs?

    I also think you'll be OK supply-wise as long as you squeeze in an extra pump at home to supply the next day's bottle. Just remember some good nursing pads for work in case you start to leak a...

    Re: Should I bring my pump to the hospital?

    Well, I have the pump set aside with our hospital bag stuff, but we will just leave it in the trunk, I think. That way, if I do need it, it's only a few minutes' walk away, and if I don't need it,...

    Preparing pump for second baby?

    Hi all,
    I have a Medela PIS which I purchased new in 2006 when my first LO was born. I am the only user of the pump. I only used it about 2 times a week for about 5 months, and then when my work...

    Should I bring my pump to the hospital?

    I am due soon with my second baby. I have a Medela PIS that I already know how to use since I did use it some with my firstborn. (Mostly we just nursed right from the source, though!)

    Is there...

    What to do with OLD frozen breastmilk?

    I have about 8 bags (2-4 oz. each) of frozen breastmilk that are 9-10 months old. (Yeah, I know.... :yikes) They have been in a freezer that is attached to a fridge and so most sources I have found...

    I know how you feel, I think! I can't say that I had been enjoying nursing recently, but now that it has been over a week since my LO last nursed, I am starting to realize he might really be done...

    Re: in hospital

    Oh hooray! 2 hours is SOOO much more do-able to be able to distract/avoid nursing! I've been following your story and am glad to see you re-united with your dd!
  9. Re: Moms of night-weaned LO's... some questions!

    Well, ladies, good news to report:

    The past 2 nights have gone fairly well. Both nights I made sure DS had a big bedtime snack (since I don't have tons of milk to fill him up with due to being...
  10. Re: Moms of night-weaned LO's... some questions!

    I'm trying to say similar things (and make a big deal about when it IS morning and we do nurse again), but I'm not sure he gets it yet? Maybe I should give him more credit!

    Another "complication"...
  11. Re: Moms of night-weaned LO's... some questions!

    Thanks,
    It's good to know that another child around the same age as my ds is successfully night-weaned! :happytears
  12. Re: Moms of night-weaned LO's... some questions!

    Thanks, Chris for your input!
    Yes, I have tried inducing pain on myself to try to "ignore" the feelings of wanting desparately for ds to stop nursing, but even that wasn't really working.
    Well,...
  13. Re: Moms of night-weaned LO's... some questions!

    Thanks, mama!
    I hope I didn't sound rude, just wondering if there's a better place to ask my questions :)
  14. Re: Moms of night-weaned LO's... some questions!

    Anyone?
    Should I move my question to "weaning" or tandem nursing, or something?

    Re: in hospital

    Not much advice here, mama, just hugs! :hug

    It's terrible to feel sick, and so far from home. I'm glad to hear the hospital is being good to you, though! :clap I would think that keeping up the...
  16. Moms of night-weaned LO's... some questions!

    We are in the process of trying to night-wean 15-month old ds due to my severe agitation/annoyance during nursing, which is worst at night. This just came on suddenly and I assume it's pregnancy...
  17. Re: Little gems of weaning wisdom...or not.

    Sorry mamas!
    Fortunately our ped is pretty pro-breastfeeding, even past 1. He did ask when we would wean, but it seemed like he was asking more out of curiousity than "suggesting" we should wean,...

    Re: Hummus

    My 12-month old just tried some and liked it OK. It had chickpeas, tahini (sesame paste), olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice. (I didn't make it myself, sorry I don't know the exact amounts!)

    I...

    Re: What size to make veg/fruit finger foods?

    My son is 7 months and he eats some small "finger foods". If things are too firm he will gag on them, so you may need to cook some things like apple and pear. Avocado, sweet potato, and banana are...

    Re: Behavior..what does it mean?

    I agree! Let her do most of her comfort-sucking at the breast if you can, and your supply will increase to meet her new level of demand.

    It won't be like that forever!

    Re: Spitting up

    We went through an intensive spitting-up phase, too. It's not completely gone, but it is MUCH better. My best advice is to try to "be prepared" to catch the spit up, wear bibs...

    We tried this kind, along with a few others and settled on the Dr. Brown's bottles. Be sure to "practice" having your lo drink from a bottle a few times before your trip, or your lo might not take...

    A nursing necklace is worn by the mama for the purpose of keeping her little one amused while nursing. It is helpful for me since my ds is at the age where he is curious and wants to look around and...
